Louis Farrakhan’s Justice…Or Else! rally will take place on October 10 at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. to commemorate the 20th anniversary of his Million Man March.

On Tuesday, Minister Farrakhan spoke at Philadelphia’s Tindley Temple United Methodist Church to mobilize support for the rally, and he announced that Philly native Will Smith and his wife, Jada, donated $150,000 to support the event.

A post on Farrakhan’s Facebook page read, “…the couple happily donated $150,000 to offset the cost of hosting the upcoming historic gathering!” The post also notes that Will attended the first Million Man March in 1995.

Even with the Smiths’ significant contribution, Vibe reports that the Justice…Or Else! march needs to raise nearly $2 million to effectively raise awareness. Farrakhan has called on other celebrities to donate and aid in the movement’s efforts.
